[There should be a photo here, but the ones I took that relaxed me so much turned out terrible, so never mind.]
I've been doing lots of other stuff to try and relax. Last weekend I got a pedicure (my toenails are a lovely shade of blue) and a massage. On Saturday I visited my favorite bath and body store, Lush, for a special they were offering-- buy fifty dollars worth of products and get a free goody bag. Have you ever tried Lush? Ooooh, their lotions, bath bombs and skin cleansers are wonderful.
Not only did I get my bag of freebies, but on Sunday I found out that I had guessed the correct number of Rollos in a glass vase and won almost $100 worth of products. I had a big smile on my face all day.
I also discovered Jane Eyre in the last few weeks. Not the book, but the Masterpiece Theater production with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson. Have you seen it? I didn't know what the story was about and found myself spellbound by the tale. The actors were so good! Especially hunky Toby. I ended up watching two other productions that I found at the library, one with Timothy Dalton (also hunky) and another with William Hurt, but didn't like those quite as much. At some point I will get around to reading the book.Last but not least, have you seen the crochet-covered sea stones at the Purl Bee? Oh my gosh, they are incredible. The designer, Margaret Oomen, is so talented. The Purl Bee describes them as mesmerizing, and that is the perfect word-- it's hard to stop looking at them.
